Although a misdemeanor is less serious than a felony, it is important to remember that a misdemeanor charge is still serious and can result in harsh penalties. Therefore, there are many reasons why it may be more beneficial to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney rather than handling it on your own:
A criminal defense attorney understands the criminal law system and can help you protect your rights.
The criminal law system is complicated and can become very confusing, very fast. Without a thorough understanding, you may not get the optimal outcome. A criminal defense attorney can help guide you through the complex legal process and this can help ensure that you take the right steps to getting the best outcome.
A criminal defense attorney can help you avoid negative outcomes (jail time, criminal record) by negotiating something that is more acceptable.
A misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can lead to significant consequences for your future. A criminal defense attorney can work to get your charges dismissed, if not reduced to avoid jail or prison time. This can make a world of difference when you are trying to find a job, or apply for a place to live.
A criminal attorney can provide you with tailored professional advice and help you feel confident about your case.
While you are trying to make your way through the criminal law system, things can get messy. A criminal defense attorney can help provide you with advice specific to your case. This will help you understand your choices, and the outcomes you may be facing. It will also help you feel more confident when dealing with your case.
